Not Just Another Love Story
"I want to give you a full description of this movie, but that would ruin the surprise ...
I'll give you a hint:
I only executed what the pixels in WOW suggest ..
And it has something to do with something that was removed in patch 1.3
Ok, that's all you get!

Subject: So fun!
Subject: Silly and fun, but impressive
Subject: Had to watch it twice!
I was impressed by the use of music; I had expected to see R rated material but since everyone was clothed (mostly) and the movements at times were ambiguous I relied on the music to clue me in to a "romantic" interlude.
A great watch and eye opening experience.
Subject: Funny and Charming, But Too Long
That said, the video was rather long and I felt myself losing interest at times. Even though some of the "shocking" scenes were rather humorous, they really seemed to extend past the point of amusement. I really think the entire video would be better if it was shortened up to maybe half of its current length.
It is fascinating to me that videos such as this are being made, as it shows just how much of themselves players put into the games they play. Instead of simply enjoying World of Warcraft as it was designed, this video proves that the barriers that exist between game worlds and the real world are not necessarily solid. Furthermore, the bleeding of cultures between the two worlds isn't always something bad, as media outlets that look to game violence as a scapegoat would so often like us to believe.
Overall, a really impressive effort in terms of the teamwork of the players, not to mention the manipulation of the game needed to pull the video's creation off. However, the video's pacing and length are somewhat of an inhibitor to its overall enjoyment. Still, as an example of the ways in which video games exist as more than simple playthings, the video is most certainly worth watching. And, should you have a bit of a "junior high" sense of humor like me, you'll enjoy some of the more inappropriate scenes!
Subject: Not just another . . .
Subject: Impressive cross-faction coordination
Subject: It's clever....but...
I was almost going to write that it is a bit tongue in cheek in parts with how the game is depicted, but... you would have to see the video to know that is not quite the right description to use.
I only gave two stars because the story was not engaging. It was too much about male fantasy to engage for me.
Watch it because it is clever, but that is it, and for me that is not quite enough.
